Black Woman Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study, that examines gender as a social and cultural construct, the social status and contributions of women, and the relationships between power and gender. Women are held to this standard of being the one to cook, clean, cater to her spouse and care for the children but it should be more than that. When women go above their expectations, they are accused as being wrong and are sometimes told to not pursue their dreams. Women should be held on the same scale as men in society, this method could prevent gender issues.

If one was to search for the definition of the term “African American Woman” they would find nothing. Although there are definitions of the words African-American and woman; one cannot define the two words together. This is just it, to actually define what it is to be an African American woman would be the equivalence of rescuing the United States from its trillion dollar debt. It’s impossible. An African American woman can be defined by her confidence, drive and knowledge. All those components define not just her, but her character, her mindset and ultimately the other women of her race.

In terms of sexuality, if a white woman is living that “single in the big city” lifestyle, people assume she is a strong and independent woman, but women of color who are living a single lifestyle are not seen as someone who is choosing to be single, but as someone that is not married because of the fact that African Americans marry at lower rates than whites due to situations like poverty and high incarceration rates for black males. (Winfrey Harris, 2012) These facts put a stereotype on all African Americans. If a white women is a single, working mother, she is praised by society for being a strong and independent woman that doesn't need a man to support her, but if a back woman was a single, working mother, society would be pitied and would be wondering what happened to her husband
